Act & adapt
The world’s greatest challenge of the 21st century: climate change. We all notice it. Flooding, heat, drought and salinization are the main effects of a changing climate and have a growing impact on our daily lives. What do we need to do about it? And how can we do this? It is important that we make our own living environment resistant to these effects. We need to adapt to the changing climate, also known as climate adaptation. Together we can create a better and climate-proof living environment, for this and future generations.
Adaptation means adjusting. Climate adaptive solutions are solutions that help us adjust and keep our own living environment safe and livable.
